National Weather Service (Kansas City / Pleasant Hill MO) 8-14 day temperature outlook for Jan. 13-19 June June
The National Weather Service-Kansas City / Pleasant Hill, MO, expanded weather forecast calls for temperatures above normal for the next 8-14 days. The heat index for the end of this week could be in the mid to late 1990s. The precipitation forecast for 8-14 days is below the normal precipitation for mid-June.
The heat index is a combination of hot weather and high humidity, which causes temperatures to feel warmer than the actual air temperature. A high heat index can quickly lead to heat-related illnesses.
The National Weather Service offers the following safety tips for the warmer days:
- Slower. Exhaustive activities should be reduced, eliminated, or postponed to the coolest part of the day. People at risk should be in the coolest place available, not necessarily indoors.
- Dress for summer. Light, light-colored clothing reflects heat and sunlight and helps your body maintain normal temperatures.
- Foods (like proteins) that increase metabolic heat production also increase water loss.
- Drink plenty of water or non-alcoholic liquids. Your body needs water to stay cool. Drink a lot, even if you are not thirsty.
- To do Not drink alcoholic beverages.
- Spend more time in air-conditioned places. The air conditioning of apartments and other buildings significantly reduces the risk of heat. If you can’t afford air conditioning, spending some time each day (in hot weather) in an air-conditioned environment provides some protection.
- Don’t get too much sun. Sunburn makes it much more difficult to dissipate heat.
